Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I have a 2004 Dodge 3500. The dash has two large cracks. One is above the airbag and I am concerned if the airbag comes out, will the dash come apart and hit the passenger.

When mud gets underneath the vehicle, it does not go into park. The consumer has to continuously move the gear. The consumer thought the vehicle was in park and it was in reverse and was almost run over.

In the center of the dashboard there is a shiny metal strip which runs straight down the center. It becomes very blinding while driving.
